Based on the initiative “Einsatz Demenz” (Operation Dementia), in which police officers were made aware of how to properly deal with people with dementia and their relatives, an online training course has now been developed for employees of public services. The focus of the course lies on being confident in dealing with people with dementia.

The objective was to develop a digital learning program for employees in municipal offices, district authorities and state governments in order to sensitise them regarding the proper behaviour towards people suffering from dementia (in particular related to crime).
